A titanic thrash tour for the ages...
UK thrash legends Onslaught are one of the most explosive and controversial metal bands ever to come out of the UK. Releasing three now legendary albums in the eighties (Power from Hell / The Force / In Search of Sanity) they will be performing The Force in its entirety on a newly-announced tour to celebrate the albumʼs thirtieth Anniversary.
Early 2016 saw the release of Live at the Slaughterhouse a live DVD that celebrated the power and raw intensity of an Onslaught show that was well received by the public and critics alike. 2016 also saw Onslaught as the first international thrash band to play Vietnam as well as touring China, Taiwan, Japan and Singapore.
The onslaught continues as relentless and hungry as ever. The Force is back due to popular demand. The tour will be extended to the Eastern EU this December for the very last time!
For this tour Onslaught will be joined by Denmarkʼs Artillery, well remembered as one of Europeʼs earliest exponents of thrash metal. Their performances on this tour will pay homage to the glory of eighties thrash metal.
After touring in Asia, South America and North America Artillery released Penalty by Perception in 2016. They are now back on the road celebrating the 30th Anniversary of their classic album Terror Squad.
When heavy metal is played by musicians who are dedicated 100%, the genre can reach a level of passion, feeling and sheer raw power like no other. Join us for an unforgettable journey fused with abrasive brutality, technicality and remarkable riffs which have defined the development of thrash metal through the years.

The second full length album Embracing Oblivion was released in 2014. Chronosphere hit the road to unleash a new wave of razor sharp riffs supporting thrash legends Destruction, Tankard and many more! Their first EU headlining tour took place in 2015 and consisted of twenty seven shows. The band’s third album is now here. Red N’ Roll will be performed throughout the Thrash ‘Till Death EU Tour.
